10 April 1921 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Very dull + cold with the biting E. wind but not nearly as strong till above 2 when the sun came out. Cycled to Yarrow Manse, Henderland + General’s Bridge. Took 1h.33m to go + 2h. to return (excluding stoppages). Gave chlor[oform] for Dav.1 for an appendicitis + ovarian cyst, which took from 5.15 till 7.
